[Mediawiki-l] Problem with image upload

Having fixed my database with Platonides' help I have users complaining
that IIS is asking for a password on pages which have images.  I've
added NTFS permissions for the IUSR_machine account to the mediawiki
folder in \inetpub\wwwroot so I'm not really sure why this is happening.

I don't get asked for a password, but then I'm a domain admin.

There's a mismatch between your mediawiki code version and your table
running maintenance/update.php If that doesn't fix it, manually ALTER
TABLE to add the img_sha1 column. You can find a list of the tables in
